Bleomycin: A Glycopeptide Antitumor Antibiotics Agent

Bleomycin, a glycopeptide antitumor antibiotic agent, was first discovered in 1966 when the Japanese bacteriologist Umezawa found anticancer activity while screening culture filtrates of Streptomyces verticillus. Activated bleomycin (Fe-bleomycin-O2 complex), the active species, forms in the reaction of bleomycin with Fe(II) and O2. It also forms in the reaction of bleomycin with Fe(III) and peroxide, or bleomycin with superoxide and either Fe(III) or Fe(II). The activated bleomycin produces DNA strand break at 3'-4' bond in a deoxyribose sugar moiety. The mechanism of this bond cleavage reaction and the nature of the active oxidizing species are still open issues.
